@PLYNX asif you would have bought a BMW :D 

 

Remember how I said nothing goes to plan with the R33? so spent a few hours at Birrong trying to start the stupid car, we got it going with start ya bastard. Car had injector pulse, spark, registered RPM, you name it! Everything was working as one would assume.

Both scratching our heads, then he got one of the workers to pull them all out and put then in an injector bath. Surprise surprise, every single one seized.

Amazing right? These are about 2 years old, have had like no more than 5000km on them and yep.. dead!

Anyhow, more money to burn - picking up a brand new set of 6 tomorrow.

Same here, had this happen across all the GTRs with 700, 1000 and 1550cc types. Are you sure they are infact seized or just stuck ? How long were they cleaned for ? I have had all different sets injectors which once cleaned for 30mins + unstuck themselves. Sent them to be ultrasonically cleaned and tested and they come back pulsing and flowing fine.

You have the Bosch EV14 1550cc yeah ?

@Duncan I think having the cold side out of the car and sitting on a bench may have contributed to this.

@BK I "could" take them to an injector place however burning time (and money) leaving the car in the shop, so easier to get a new set. Will try clean/service the old set, then sell them to recoup costs.

And yes they're the 1480/1550/1650 (at 4bar) as everyone calls them.

This is making me nervous now, my car has been sitting in the garage for a month now with the two fuel lines that come from the tank just sitting with nothing but a plastic bag zip-tied over the lines as a cap. The injectors are out for servicing but it's going to suck if the fuel absorbs water or something and damages the injectors as soon as I get the car back together.

Yeah fair enough, but I bet there is a high chance to unstlck them and they will not be compromised. I know Bosch and ID actually recommend you to submerge them in fuel when in storage to prevent this (not that I've ever done or seen anyone do that). I have the same EV14 1550cc in the blue 32, but Denso EV1 700cc and 1000cc in the other two - all stuck even from 98.

It's just weird when they do that after sitting and sticking because everytime I've sent them away, (to Adelaide mind you, not just down the road) they clean them first, then flow test them - and then EVERYTIME report there's nothing bloody wrong with them ! Grrr !

It just seems to stick them, not damage them and is completely random. I've had my 33 sit for 2 years without starting it before and not stick. Water getting into fuel and damaging fuel pumps is more likely - I think I'm on my 4th Nismo pump in the 33 in 18 years as they do fail from sitting.

You won't have an issue, as serviced injectors generally would have some lubricant applied.

And once everything is installed and then primed you theoretically should have a closed loop system.

Oh no I made a mistake !  I wouldn't buy a 2021 BMW M8 Competition F93 Auto M xDrive !

Its the 2021 BMW M8 Competition F92 Auto M xDrive I was after ! ! ! 

Don't need four doors . . . . . 

But you, in the end, are correct. Got house buying priorities first at the moment

After sitting so long isn’t it just a “thing you do” to flow up and check the injectors before dyno time? Doesn’t take much variance between them to upset a “highly strung” setup. 

🤷‍♂️

Yeah normally I would, however these injectors probably has seen less than 5000km of use - lesson learnt nevertheless. 

Other than that, DBW works, closed loop idle worked well with a can of start ya bastard sprayed into the throttle 😂

You don't get to post anything in here without a GT-R update and some onboard footage of you banging gears. 

Thanks

On stands, no rego, hot side off and a thick layer of dust. Might come back to it in 4 years.

Building a house. Pushingcash towards that, don’t really have the time to take a toy for a drive at the moment. Last time it was registered I drove it like 3 times.
Life changes, priorities change. It’s a toy. 🤷‍♂️
 

Back to johnnies car. No need to stink up his thread with my dribble.

    • All the Pro and Comp series IC are made to order. Unfortunately not off the shelf as you would think. I waited 2 months for mine LOL...
    • Thanks mate, great advice. I just need to try and get one by the end of November now.. it can't hurt doing both and taking outside air in from the bumper or something like that.
    • Hey man its been a very long time since i've been on the thread sorry man. Really good to see your car getting along, sounds like a lot of effort and love has been put into it. Currently my car is regoed in victoria as a non turbo from before the conversion lol, so that front mount might cause a bit of suspicion. All the work to the motor was carried out by rajab racing down here in melb, and its a bloody ripper of an engine. Has the beautiful iconic turbo dose. Still currently running the factory 5 speed gearbox so we'll see how long that holds up. Currently only making about 140kw on pretty low boost, once a stronger gearbox and possibly internals are bought and installed im hoping for around the 200-250kw mark. Car goes hard for what it is, extremely fun to drive. Here are some photos, will post some more exterior and interior ones soon if you like. Only exterior change is installed black ti wheels because they look much better than the silo wheels on the white car. 
    • Half the kit is here so got a start. Just jap rears from eBay here in a few days, sleeka spares front kit direct from them, still stuck in Melbourne (rom SA) since the 22nd =\ Realised I do not have a 36mm socket so couldn't remove the rear hub, which is the half of the kit I have. Plan was to disconnect the arms to swivel the knuckle down to remove drive shaft and get access to the bolts at the back, after disconnecting them all the thought occurred to me that I can probably just disconnect the shalf at the diff and push it out of the hub instead and leave the arms, oh well.  Do have a 30mm so prep'd the front. In love with new impact gun, in love with hoist, in love with small 12v power ratchet, Wish I had bought some of this years ago, makes life and working on the car so much nicer.  Car looking even sadder now.
    • Plazmaman Pro or Hypertune are the go. Plazmaman more likely available straight off the shelf and a bit cheaper.   In all honesty, I would do the intercooler before you do too much else. Airboxes arent as essential as a lot believe, they do make a difference and they help and given they're fairly cheap and simple to make its not a terrible idea, but - an airbox isn't going to bring 60° charge temps down very much at all. 80° ambient temperature at the pod filter isn't terrible, your turbo is going to be heating the charge air a lot more than that. So your intercooler sounds horrendously inefficient.  Cold air intakes from outside the engine bay are also unnecessary, the positive lift and drag you cause by doing that is more harmful to performance than warm IAT's. Unless you can duct air in from an existing opening in your front bumper. But in reality there is already plenty of cold air going to your pod filter, these engine bays are not stagnant pockets of hot air, there is plenty of movement in there. Get good intercooler, fit that, go for a retune. If your intake temps are still up over 50°, then think about making an airbox and fitting a water sprayer etc. But I bet you'll find a Plazmaman Pro cooler has your charge temps back down around the low 40's
